Bugsy Malone, directed by Sean Holmes, features a book by Parker and songs by Oscar winner Paul Williams, including "Ordinary Fool," "You Give a Little Love," and "Fat Sam’s Grand Slam."

Set during Prohibition, Bugsy Malone spotlights rival gangster bosses Fat Sam and Dandy Dan, who are at loggerheads. Enter Bugsy Malone, a penniless one-time boxer thrust not-so-willingly into the gangster limelight when he becomes the last resort for Fat Sam's hapless hoodlums. All Bugsy really wants to do is spend time with his new love, Blousey, but that just isn't on the cards.
